High Summer Photo Contest Finalist
High Summer
High Summer
Quiraing, Skye, Scotland

Given a choice I prefer to shoot at first light as the quality of this type of light is soft colourful and very beautiful, shooting in the late morning is usually not terribly productive but here the carpet of greenery is like a wrinkled snooker table full of bumps and depressions and large puffy white clouds flee briskly across the sky culminating in the most wonderful patterns of light and shade that give this scene immense depth and colour. Ultimately this single image transports me back to that fine breezy warm summers day high on the Quiraing effectively and brings me as much joy as any image I have ever taken there.

NEW!! Photographic workshops and masterclasses and the 2011 Transient Light Calendars are now available at WWW.TRANSIENTLIGHT.CO.UK

Every month, with our camera in hand, we go out and find what we hope will be the “winning photo.”
Those of us that don’t get recognized, just continue to search for that special image, until one day the Congratulations come pouring in from some of the best artist and friends anyone could image.
So to the Better Photo winners for the month of September, I congratulate you on a job so well done.
My very best to all of you, Merna Nobile
